This book does exactly what it set out to. “A practical guide to raising kids with autism”. Colette de Bruin’s experience comes from both her family life and her career. Whilst this in itself gives her credibility, her use of anecdotal evidence throughout the book brings this book to life for any parent/practitioner.


The book is easy to follow; it starts with a solid background on what autism is and how it manifests itself in children. Colette then goes on to propose her theory that it is up to the carer to provide clarity to the autistic child, by using her model of What, Where, How, When and Who of every task. Its very basis is the assumption, that as carers, we need to adapt to the child with autism’s way of viewing the world. Once we are doing this, i.e. by putting on our “auti specs” we can then go on to help make their world less confusing by using these five essential criteria as a central basis on each task or interaction with the child.

Colette succeeds in writing a book that offers a solid foundation on raising or working with children with autism.
A must read for parents and practitioners alike.
